    Actually built that engine from those plans, but made a few design changes. Run good on air. I would follow the suggestions from others to start out.

    Oh cool,
    That is what I been wanting to see, thanks.
    How did you cut out the big end of the valve rod? on rotory table?
    I haven't yet got my mind wrapped around that shape.

    Thank you Brian, your drawings are top notch, exactly what I like to see in a set of drawings. Makes all the other free plans on the internet look like crap.
    You should take all of your plan sets, put them in a big book, and charge $100 for it.

    I did my rod end on my Tormach mill, but very doable on a rotary table.

    Look under the 'Models To Build" Link, right hand column for newer plans (older plans are on dvd's). Click on pic of plans and a "blue Print" will come up which you can download. Check the bottom of the page for links for serialized article pages for the model.

    In reality, there's only a handful of plans on that web page that are actually decent or complete enough to end up with something. Looking at them, they are horribly laid out. No where near anything you get with one of Brian's plans.

    How can I cut that without a rotory table?
    I got a manual lathe, manual mill, and a drill press with a x-y table.
    How can I do that cut??

    You can make a jig that is like a ball turner for a lathe, except you bolt your workpiece to it, feed it into the end mill, and pivot the workpiece with your hand creating the radius.

    RB211--So glad that you like the plans. That is one of many "early" plan sets that I give away free. I charge $25 for my newer stuff, but there are a lot of my early "free plans' floating around on the internet.---Brian
